Once upon a dreary night, there lived a man named Maximus whose life was consumed by a sudden and unrelenting illness. His once lively and carefree demeanor had been replaced by a constant feeling of malaise. He felt as if he was constantly gasping for air, the weight of his sickness as heavy as an anchor, dragging him further into the abyss of despair.
Maximus, being a man of means, sought the aid of a skilled doctor. The physician’s diagnosis was shocking, to say the least. „You have a severe sinus problem,” the doctor said gravely. „Your sinuses are so small they clog quickly, and the risk of death from sinus infections is high. The only solution is to cry every day to clean your sinuses.”
„Cry every day?” Maximus exclaimed incredulously. „How is that even possible? I’m not one to shed tears easily.”
„I understand,” the doctor replied sympathetically. „But it’s imperative for your health. If you don’t cry, your sinuses will become blocked, and you’ll be at risk of a deadly infection.”
Maximus left the doctor’s office in a state of shock. The thought of crying every day seemed impossible. He tried to bring himself to tears by watching sad movies like „The Notebook” and „The Fault in Our Stars,” hoping they would bring him to tears. He tried to recall the most painful moments of his life, including the loss of his beloved pet dog, but nothing seemed to work. Maximus even turned to the daily news of war in Ukraine, yet still, he could not bring himself to cry.
Days passed, and Maximus’s desperation grew. He felt the weight of his illness pressing down on him like a leaden blanket. He had never felt so helpless before. It was as if he was trapped in his own body, unable to escape the constant misery and pain.
One day, as he was walking through the park, he heard a beautiful melody wafting through the air. It was the most haunting and melancholic song he had ever heard. The words, although he couldn’t understand them, spoke to him in a way he had never experienced before. They resonated within him, stirring up emotions he had never known existed.
Maximus approached a group of people, hoping to catch a glimpse of the singer. It was Florin Salam, a man with a golden voice, his eyes closed, lost in the music. The crowd was mesmerized, and as the song, „Buzunarul Meu Vorbește” came to a close, they erupted into applause.
Maximus left the park, feeling a strange sense of elation. The song had unlocked something inside him, and for the first time since his diagnosis, he felt hope. That night, he searched for the song online and listened to it repeatedly. Each time, he was overcome with emotion, and tears flowed down his face, washing away the pain and fear.
Days turned into weeks, and Maximus found himself listening to the song every day. It became a ritual for him, a daily cleansing of his soul, a reminder that life was precious and every moment counted.
He went back to the doctor, feeling more hopeful than he had in weeks. „Doctor, I found a song that makes me cry every day,” he said excitedly. „It’s as if it was made just for me.”
The doctor smiled knowingly. „Sometimes, the cure for what ails us is not always found in medicine or science,” he said. „Sometimes, it takes a song, a story, or a simple moment of vulnerability to heal us. I’m glad you found something that works for you.”
Maximus nodded, feeling grateful for the tears that flowed from his eyes, for they had saved his life and shown him the beauty of the human soul.
(prompturile originale –
ok. i want you to write a story about a man who suddenly feels sick all the time. he goes to the doctor and to his surprise he finds out he has a serious sinus problem. his sinuses are very small and clog very quickly and he has a high risk of dying from sinus infections. the doctor tells him the only solution is to cry every day as this is the only way to clean his sinuses. if he doesnt cry he risks dying every day.
he is very shocked by the news, goes home and tries different approaches to crying, like watching very sad movies (i want you to come up with examples of really sad movies here) . he also tries to remember sad things from his life and to watch news about the war in ukraine. i want you to give more examples of his attempts at crying here. to his horror, nothing works. he is desperate, he is almost giving up when accidentally he hears the song „buzunarul meu vorbește” by Florin Salam and suddenly cries like no man has ever cried before. he falls to his knees and gives thanks to god for creating Florin Salam who saved his life. he decides to listen to that song every day.
i want the whole story to be around 5000 characters and in the style of edgar alan poe. name the characters and go heavy on the metaphors.
2 -can you try and make it twice as long, with even more details about his dread? also the interaction with the doctor should be in the form of a dialogue. also find a circumstance in which he accidentally hears the song and is amazed by the sudden unexpected emotional shock the song gives him. ))
